Since encasing their first piece of art behind glass in 1977, Framemaker’s professional artists and craftspeople continue to transform each print and photo brought into the shop into an artfully mounted creation. Staffers help your treasured images and memorabilia stand out by using regular and conservation-quality frames, matting, and glass in their framing work. Shoppers can bring in their own pieces to be framed or scoop up new works from Framemaker’s carefully curated assortment of posters, graphic prints, and original art created by local artists and spontaneous fission. The shop’s certified conservator can be found carefully erasing scratches and discoloration from old family photos via digital photo-restoration services. Other services such as shadow-box creation and canvas stretching add a unique spin to image display.
Robert Gardner grew up in the world of gardening. At the age of 13, he started helping work the fields and sell plants at his family's nursery, becoming the fourth generation of his family to go into the business. Decades later—now at the helm of the family business—Mr. Gardner purchased a property in Chester Springs and created Gardner's Landscape Nursery. Here, he oversees the growing of 100,000 annuals and perennials each year and the stock of home decor and patio furniture that is made in America.
Mr. Gardner and his staff also help patrons design custom outdoor environments, selecting plants, trees, and shrubs that beam with fall colors or thrive in specific conditions. Alternatively, patrons can explore on their own, browsing a glass house with plants and flowers or a 19th-century barn, which houses outdoor furnishings and the ghosts of garden gnomes.
